Rep Nikki Randall Endorses David Cook for Macon DA
(Macon, GA) Democratic State Rep. Nikki Randall today endorsed David Cooke for Macon Judicial Circuit District Attorney.
“I’ve known David Cooke and his family for a long time, and I’m proud to call him a friend. He’s fought to protect our families and neighborhoods in an honest, selfless way that has inspired a lot of other folks,” Randall said. “David Cooke is exactly the kind of DA Middle Georgia families and businesses need. David is an amazing husband, father, prosecutor and neighbor – he’s a good man. He would do a great job as DA.”
He previously served as Chief of the Special Victims Unit (SVU) for four years, was a Chief Senior Assistant District Attorney in Atlanta, Georgia, where he successfully handled the starvation and torture-murder case of five-year-old Terrell Peterson. In addition to working in the Homicide and Special Victims Units in Atlanta, Cooke served as an Assistant Solicitor-General in Athens, GA, and as an Assistant District Attorney in Carrollton, GA.
Cooke is a frequent lecturer on crimes against women and children, and has been featured multiple times as an expert commentator on HLN’s Nancy Grace Show.
